The Threat of “Vampire Loads”
Learn what's draining your energy and increasing your electricity bill.
Beware. There's something lurking in your home called a “vampire load.” It's an electricity load of purely wasted energy generated when your electronic equipment supposedly is turned “off.” This load drains energy, in turn increasing your electricity bill. Now that's pretty scary.
Most people are susceptible to vampire loads. Specifically, more than 80 percent of users disable computer power management settings within 90 days (source: Verdiem), allowing the stealth drain to happen. When you consider that the average cost of electricity is 10.5 cents, you can see that such waste is more than just bad for the environment. It's bad for your wallet.
APC by Schneider Electric comes to the rescue
APC by Schneider Electric offers the industry's best defense against such vampire loads: the BE750G, BX1300G, and BX1500G. These energy-efficient Back-UPS units arm you with the ability to eliminate vampire loads.
They feature unique, powersaving Master/Control outlets that automatically shut off power to controlled outlets when the computer plugged into the host outlet is deemed asleep. Because the green Back-UPS units ensures all your peripherals are off, your computer, printer, scanner, and other peripherals all can sleep efficiently—without the threat of wasteful vampire loads.
Power savings means cost savings
This power savings means cost savings, about enough to pay back the cost of the equipment in three to four years. Over three years, the BX1300G saves you $144, and the BX1500G saves you $150 in energy costs. This savings accumulates primarily over the life of the equipment's three-year warranty coverage, giving you the added benefit of saving money while your equipment is guaranteed. Now that's the kind of math you want to hear about!
And, just as important, these green Back-UPS units enable you to protect your equipment, data, and budget while also being mindful of our environment.
